Exactly why is the number of cabinets served by local exchange considered as sensitive ?
That reply is not very helpfull is it? Not as though the official secrets act is being breached is it? Will be contacting my local MP to discuss this farce. As I understand it BT is being paid a substantial ammount of tax payers funding to improve rural broadband? What is the problem with telling me how many cabinets have been upgraded on my local exchange to FTTC compared to how many cabinets are served by my local exchange?
This is a BT residential customer to customer forum. You would need to ask Openreach that question and you have been advised how to go about that.
Do not want to say thanks
My exchange is indicated as Market place 1 which means: This exchange has BT Wholesale as the sole provider of broadband services. Suprising?
Being a Market 1 exchange doesn't mean you can only get BT Retail broadband/services. It just means that other ISPs have not "Unbundled the exchange" to install their own exchange hardware (possibly due to it not being financially viable). However you can still get other services/broadband from other ISPs on your exchange, just using the BT Wholesale network rather than using their own LLU network.
Any way back to the topic, as said before you will be best to contact your BDUK broadband scheme (Better Broadband for Suffolk) or NGA Openreach for answers regarding the rollout of fibre in your exchange area. Your MP may be able to get info to confirm if your with scope of the BDUK project or not.
